Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act
Signed into law in 2011 and came into effect on January 4, 2014 

Section 1417 of the SDWA, was amended to states that (1) when used in respect to solder and flux, the product must not contain more than 0.2 percent lead, and (2) the weighted average amount of lead content that is acceptable in plumbing products carrying drinking water is a maximum of 0.25 percent. The EPA now defines “lead free” as “not more than a weighted average of 0.25% lead when used with respect to the wetted surfaces of pipes, pipe fittings, plumbing fittings, and fixtures”.

There are states that have their own regulations pertaining to lead content which require product certification. Local laws might also require certification.
